Paint and Prayers

As promised, a few pictures of the painting! These two are from the very first day. We should be pretty much done the entire house with the first coat of primer by the end of this week.
Tendai is allways anxious to help. :)
she also loves to eat lunch with the guys- who love to share their sudza and fish with her as much as she loves to eat it! Lucky for me, cus i dont make sudza and fish, so Im glad she can eat it there!


umm. mmm. yeah. ill stick to mashed potatoes and gravy thanks. :)

This is just a teezer post though- ill take some more painting pics of some of the colors and tinted primers going on in the coming week. Right now everything looks really ... white. :) Rick and the carpenters have also been busy working installing doors and the window frames for the glass panes in the windows. All of the exterior doors are in, and we can now lock and secure the house, which is a big plus! (since if we really wanted to we could move a few things into there now to make room to sort thru the stuff in our current cottage)

Tomorow im heading into town with Elizabeth, one of the shortterm visitors we have had here for the last two months. They leave on Thursday, but first we are going to the used clothing market to pick out school clothes for the Amigo Orphans. The used clothing market is a MAZE of informal shops with no real organization, but plenty of good quality second hand clothes at ridiculously cheap prices! And on thursday we will do orphan food delivery.

Keep your eyes open for more updates! Now that I have figured out Blogsy as a blogging platform just a little bit, I can update more often! :)

On another note, please continue to pray with us that our ministry needs and house project needs will be met. We appreciate all of you who support us and pray for us - we cannot survive here without you. We need prayers for not only our finances however, prayers for our physical, emotional, spiritual health and safety is just as important, more so in fact! Recently missionaries who live in a "boom city" about 3 hours north of us, were attacked and robbed in their home at night. It was a horrible attack, and although the physical wounds will heal quickly, the emotional ones will take much longer. They have been examples of grace and compassion thru it all, but I am sure they would still appreciate your prayers as they continue to heal as well. As missionaries, we COVET the prayers of those faithful back home who have been called to cover us in prayer!

God Bless, Rick, Heather & Tendai

I will definitely pray for all your good intentions. And I really hope that many would still continue helping those children in needs. And by the way, I hope there will be more pictures when the works are all completed.
